Polarized HD Target for Future Leps Experiments at SPRING-8 in Japan

Abstract : We are carrying out hadron photoproduction experiments by using polarized photon beams with energies of 1.5-2.9 GeV at SPring-8 in Japan. In 2005, we started developing a polarized HD target for future LEPS experiments using both the polarized photon beams and the polarized target. To introduce a polarized target plays an important role in upgrading the LEPS experiments to the next higher step. The measurement of double polarization asymmetries is expected to give important informations to investigate the nucleon hidden structure, hadron photoproduction dynamics, and exotic hadron property. We report on the present status of the development of the polarized HD target at RCNP. We will carry out a test experiment to confirm that the polarized HD target can be transported from Osaka university to SPring-8 without any problems in 2010. If we succeed in the test experiment, we will carry out a long experiment to take physics data in 2011-2012.
